We offer a personal travel insurance policy specifically designed for our itineraries made by Columbus Travel Insurance Services Limited, whose coverage is among the castes among those proposed on the market. In addition to medical care, the policy provides a guarantee for the cancellation and trip interruption for many causes. In the case of routes on foot or by bicycle, the policy also provides coverage in the event of incapacity due to illness or injury.

In this case, we ask you to see if your insurance coverage is at least equivalent to our policy and that is adequate to the present mode of stays in our proposals. We do not accept liability for damage, loss or expense additional costs caused by the lack of the above.
